This is a port of Mortal Kombat 3. The music was mostly reused from Yoko Soft's ''Mortal Kombat 5'', released in 1995. The "Bouns" typo was also carried over from ''Mortal Kombat 5''.
   
The game is a port of either ''Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3'' or ''Mortal Kombat Trilogy'', although the latter's logo appearing before the title screen and due to it being more recent at the time suggest it is a port of ''Mortal Kombat Trilogy''. The music was mostly reused from Yoko Soft's ''Mortal Kombat 5'', released in 1995 and the title screen music is an-off key rendition of the character select theme from the original ''Mortal Kombat''. The "Bouns" typo was also carried over from ''Mortal Kombat 5''.

The game includes 8 characters with no repeats in the original version. They are Sindel, Liu Kang, Kano, Sonya, Sub-Zero, Stryker, Shang Tsung (who uses Nightwolf's headshot) and Kung Lao. Unlike the original, it's possible to perform a fatality in the first round. There is only one fatality in the game, which involves smashing the opponent into little balls. The ending is a simple Congratulation screen bordered by the franchise's logo.
   
The game includes 10 characters (although there is a version without the duplicates named "''Mortal Kombat 4''") with some repeating: They are Sindel, Liu Kang, Kano, Sonya, Nightwolf, Kung-Lao, Stryker, Sub-Zero, and Shang Tsung, who is referred as "Shang" in-game. Unlike the original, it is possible to perform a fatality in the first round. Also, when finishing the Sindel, the HUD says "Finish Him", while it is "Finish Her" with Sonya. There is only one fatality in the game, which involves smashing the opponent into gory little balls. The ending is a simple Congratulation screen bordered by the franchise's iconic dragon logo.
